From the Inside Flap:
New Orleans is world famous for its unique residents and stunning architecture. Those who live in the Crescent City have crafted homes to suit their tastes and needs, creating some of the most beautiful, fascinating structures in the nation. Explore the private homes of renowned neighborhoods, including the Garden District, the French Quarter, Bayou St. John, the Bywater, and the Faubourg Marigny.
Author Bonnie Warren profiles the residents, their relationships to their homes, and well-known former occupants. Homeowners discuss the histories of their houses, detailing renovations and repairs and expounding upon striking the balance between preserving history and infusing the home with personal style. Inhabitants recount the fine points of additions and modernizations. Photographer Cheryl Gerber captures both the gorgeous exteriors of the houses and the intimate indoor details, design, and furnishings. The seamless marriage of past and present that defines New Orleans is encapsulated in these lush pages.
